Shook Ankles: Is Steve Nash A Permanent Fixture?
Every player ages. Every player slows down. Every player retires. Every player expires. This was believed to be truth before Steve Nash. As of today, the Suns starting point guard is 37-years-old, and in the clip above, which took place in the 2010 playoffs, he crosses up a then 24-year-old point guard and a then 21-year-old power forward. But he doesn’t just cross them up, he befuddles them in every which way, blind-folding both youngsters and putting them on skates. Is Steve Nash the greatest 37-year-old basketball player who ever lived? Despite no statistical measures or analytical data to support the claim, the answer is a resounding yes.
